Listen to Radio Marinara - 23 February 202039:4323 February 2020

Dr Paul Carnell (Deakin University’s Blue Carbon Lab) will update us on sea urchin culling trials in Port Phillip Bay, plus seagrass loss at Corner Inlet and the implication(our Baykeeper) reports on Summer by the Sea, the upcoming Wooden Boat Festival in Geelong, and what's coming up in March. Plus Neil’s alterego Captain Trash reckons he’ll also pop in with his ‘Bamboozlarr’, a musical instrument made from rescued and recycled materials, played with…. thongs (for our US subscribers… the thongs worn on your feet). We catch up with AJ on the Ninch about growing concerns about the vulnerability of the natural phenomenon that is the annual migration of spider crabs (photo by the fab PT Hirschfield). And Jeff Maynard brings the first of his 2020 ‘Soundwaves Saves the World!’ Science is proving powerless in the face of superstition. Science has to get mad to save the world. This year we go in search of mad science and what better place to start than 1950s ‘Dive In’ movies. Grab your popcorn and get ready for giant crab people, talking alligators and seaweed beach monsters. They could be the ocean’s last hope.
